The Nespresso by Breville espresso maker with milk frother is on sale for $100 (Update: Sold out)

Genuinely good single-serve espresso has rarely been this affordable. Plus: One of the best laptop deals I've ever seen.

This espresso maker and milk frother are an excellent deal at $100.

Cheeps, the deals are coming out of the woodwork today. A sampling:

This last is part of Best Buy's rather mammoth early Black Friday sale, which I encourage you to check out. For now, however, let's talk coffee. Regular Cheapskate readers know I'm moderately obsessed with it, and recently took a deep dive into the most affordable ways to brew great coffee at home.

Sometimes, however, push-button simplicity is what you want. And when there's a deal like this, it's worth a look. For a limited time, and while supplies last, the Nespresso Essenza by Breville single-serve espresso maker is on sale for $100 -- a $50 savings. But that price also includes a Nespresso Aeroccino milk frother, which normally sells for $100 all by itself.

The Essenza delivers single shots of espresso via Nespresso OriginalLine capsules, which typically sell for around 70 cents apiece. Thankfully, you can find third-party capsules for less -- and I've seen some pretty good bulk-capsule deals at Costco.

There's waste, yes, but Nespresso commendably offers a recycling program.

As for the frother, I can't overstate the benefits. Adding frothed, heated milk or cream to your coffee takes it to a completely different level. My advice: Get some oat milk and turn your shot of espresso into a seriously delicious latte.

If you love espresso (or know someone who does -- gift-giving season is approaching), this is one of the best coffee-maker deals I've seen in recent memory.

Don't miss this $300 Lenovo laptop deal


Lots of folks are still hunting for laptop deals, and this blows away pretty much everything I've seen in 2020: For a limited time, and while supplies last, Best Buy (as part of the aforementioned sale) has the Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15.6-inch laptop for $300. That's $150 off the regular price and just a smoking buy.

Usually, at this price point there's some kind of shortcoming -- a low-resolution screen, for example, or limited storage. Nope: The IdeaPad 3 has a full-HD (1,920x1,080) display and 256GB solid-state drive.

With its Intel Core i3 processor and 8GB of RAM, it's not well-suited to gaming or video editing. But for everyday computing, there's more than enough horsepower. The only real shortcoming I can see is that it lacks a USB-C port.

If you can live with that, grab this before it's gone. It will be, soon.
